MotoGP: BritishGP - Q2 - 15 minutes which have shaken the world


Qualification of the Grand Prix of Great Britain on MotoGP became a show not smaller and not less intense, than any race. In fact, it was the small-big race - only 15 minutes for which there were so many changes that it was impossible to predict an outcome, even when... over the route the checkered flag has shot up!

For a start, a rain has significantly complicated a situation in Silverstone. On dry, but cool asphalt of the British track in the morning pilots of MotoGP couldn't affect the positions in Q2 in any way: who hasn't passed from the first attempt, has been forced to pass additional test of Q1. Results of Friday - a position in TOP-10.

of Andrea Dovizioso predicted a fight with Márquez and Kratchlou, but also he obviously didn't expect that there will be in the last minutes qualifications.

From Q1 on half cheese, half wet asphalt in Q2 could break through Bradli Smith on KTM and Alex Rins on Suzuki. Decisive qualification has been postponed by the decision of Directorate for rather long term waiting for the fact that the track nevertheless will dry out. But isn't present, he hasn't dried out completely so it was necessary to work all the same at rain cutting!

In 2 minutes prior to end of Q2 still wasn't a clear understanding who the leader: Zarqa, Márquez, Miller (!), Dovizioso, Lorenzo, Petruchchi, Smith moved according to the list up and down. Probably, everyone has managed to visit the 1st line. So, constantly improving time, they have approached a mark 00:00 on the timer, and over the route the checkered flag has appeared.

But it wasn't the end of fight!

Exactly at 00:00 Andrea Dovizioso has crossed the line of the finish with modern best times of a circle - 2:10.314, having improved the previous application for 0.9 seconds at once. The garage of Ducati Factory has stood as on a fast circle at this moment there was Lorenzo. And he managed to make better - 2:10.155!

B same is a high time the last attempt Rossi who couldn't improve result 2:13.504 which as a result became the worst from a session, the 12th has finished.

Kratchlou, Zarko, Smith and Márquez - all were on a fast circle. The shot has made the first Zarko, having passed on the 3rd position, but Kratchlou has forced out him from there. However, for a while. The Frenchman has managed to make one more shot - at the very best last moment, has managed to pass British - and it has again turned out on the header line of a starting lattice with 2:10.439. Márquez hasn't improved, but Petruchchi could be fixed on the 2nd line of a lattice. A third Yannone, Smith and Miller have closed.
